Abstract

The gentrification of urban areas has accelerated across the globe in recent years to become a central force in urban change. This text is international in scope and interdisciplinary in approach. Drawing on a wide range of case studies from Europe and North America, it show how gentrification has grown from a small urban process, pioneered by a liberal new middle class, to become a mass-produced gentrification blueprint applied around the world. Seven chapters trace the emergence of gentrification across time and space, the various explanations proposed, and its various advantages and disavantages. - (HC)
